The smash hit Mortal Kombat was everywhere in the early ’90s. Created by Ed Boon and John Tobias, the game was on every system, in every arcade, and sparking controversy with its levels of bloody violence. The Fatalities, in part, led to the creation of the ESRB video game rating system and ever since its release, the gaming industry just hasn’t been the same. This week, we take a look back at both the game and the big screen Hollywood adaptation. First, however, is our main event, in which we discuss Tembo the Badass Elephant. Developed by Game Freak — and published by Sega, Tembo draws on the DNA of Sega’s classic 2D platforming franchise, Sonic the Hedgehog. We’ll let you know if we like it or not. Joining us is guest Quentin Danglade from the FTW Gaming podcast.

Best of the NXpress Nintendo Podcast: Revisiting ‘The Wizard’

The Wizard 1989 Movie Review

Although e-sports have long been a part of video game culture since the early ’70s, competitions saw a large surge in popularity in 1989 when Universal Pictures-produced The Wizard, a movie about a trio of kids who make their way to a national Nintendo video game championship for a grand prize of $50,000. The Wizard didn’t go down as a timeless, cinematic classic, but it did develop an understandable cult following as the years went on, and in this segment, we tell you why.

Super Mario 64 Podcast Review

In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and discussed Super Mario 64, arguably one of the greatest video games to date, and one which all games would be judged henceforth. How does it hold up today? Listen in and find out what we think.

Editor’s Note: Sadly, half of this 50-minute review was accidentally deleted. We plan on revisiting Super Mario 64 again in the near future.

Super Mario Galaxy Review

In this segment, we continued our Super Mario marathon and finally got around to discussing the third 3D original platformer in the series after Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. The iconic mascot’s long resume features some of the greatest platformers to ever grace any home console and on this episode, we reviewed Super Mario Galaxy, created by Nintendo’s EAD Tokyo studio, whose first project (believe it or not) was DK Jungle Beat, a disappointing flop for Nintendo.
